My name is Lafras, a lifelong tinkerer, maker and sometimes inventor, but mostly an analyst programmer (developer as we are known these days). I have been a self-employed entrepreneur for the last 23 years, I own a beautiful home with my wife and I live and work in wonderful KZN, South Africa.
Right from childhood I have always loved building stuff for myself, to share and sell, but budget and availability of parts was always a problem, until I discovered programming, On my ZX81 (a.k.a. Timex Sinclair 1000) I could create anything in 1KB RAM, share it with friends and all it cost was a cassette tape, Professional programming has been my life, but now I am rediscovering the joys of making and choosing my own projects. Inventor reborn. My story is not unique, and I am sure you feel the same way, together we can make more things, many many more things.
